Name: Mini Mansions
Track name: Vertigo (ft Alex Turner)
Hometown: Los Angeles
Who? Queens of the Stone Age’s Michael Shuman, plus Zach Dawes, Tyler Parkford and a cheeky Monkey.
Why now? This track, featuring a little help from the Arctic Monkeys frontman, appears on Mini Mansions new album The Great Pretenders, which came out on Monday (23 March). However Alex Turner didn’t just provide vocal help, he rolled up for the video (below) shoot too. “The night before the shoot we played this strange private party for Saint Laurent with Bleached and Sky Ferreira, where we each played 15 minute sets. So there was plenty of time for debauchery afterward,” recalls Shuman. “Us and Alex managed to stumble onto set for the shoot at 9am with a half dozen naked ladies waiting to partake in the shoot. I’d say it was a pretty ideal setup for the making of this video.”
